Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman Season 2
Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman Season 2
First Air Date: September 18, 1994
|First Aired on||:||1994|
Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman's second season originally aired between September 18, 1994 and May 21, 1995, beginning with "Madame Ex". The series loosely follows the comic philosophy of writer John Byrne, with Clark Kent as the true personality, and Superman as a secondary disguise. As the show's title suggests, it focuses as much on the relationship between Clark Kent and Lois Lane as on the adventures of Clark's alter-ego. The central characters in season 2 are Dean Cain as Clark Kent/Superman, Teri Hatcher as Lois Lane, Lane Smith as Perry White, Eddie Jones as Jonathan Kent, K Callan as Martha Kent, Justin Whalin as Jimmy Olsen. Season two dropped the character of Cat Grant and replaced Michael Landes with Justin Whalin as Jimmy Olsen. The official reason, according to Landes, was that he looked too similar to Dean Cain. Series creator Deborah Joy LeVine and the entire first-season writing team were also dismissed. The new producer, Robert Singer, planned a stronger focus on "action"; the show also focused more on the budding romance of Lois and Clark.
